Achieving compliance across a wealth of new international data privacy laws and regulations is the benchmark for effective cybersecurity. With remote working now at an all-time high, there has never been a more important time to take data security seriously.

Data classification enables you to identify and prioritize the data you need to protect, including critical unstructured data such as intellectual property. When data is effectively classified, users and the other layers of security that support them gain certainty over how data should be handled. Grey areas are reduced and mistakes are less easily made or eradicated, especially when users are supported by automatically applied policies based on the data’s classification status.

The level of protection data classification provides is particularly important when dealing with the supply chain and third-party suppliers. Breaches originating in third parties are common and costly – a Ponemon Institute/IBM study found that breaches being caused by a third party was the top factor that amplified the cost of a breach, adding an average of $370,000 to the breach cost.

Our classification solutions apply both visual labels and metadata, which can be used to both enforce your organization’s security policies, as well as seamlessly integrate with a range of best-of-breed security technology, such as data loss prevention, rights management, and encryption to name a few – ensuring downstream protection of data.
